Workplace Discrimination and Retaliation

Workers are entitled to a workplace free of discrimination and harassment because of sex, age, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, pregnancy and pregnancy related conditions, genetic information, ancestry and veteran status. Reporting discrimination or harassment based on one of the above categories – by a coworker, supervisor, or boss is a “protected activity” under the law. Unfortunately, some workers are subjected to retaliation for reporting and opposing discrimination and harassment, filing a complaint with one of the agencies charged with investigating discrimination and harassment, or participating in an investigation regarding discrimination or harassment. If you believe you have been subjected to workplace discrimination or retaliation, call today to discuss your situation and determine your best legal options.
